From 2pm until 4pm there will be an event at the same venue for existing volunteers with the organisation.

It will be open to those who volunteer with the community visiting, carers’ respite sitting, Bedale minibus and community car schemes.

Lizzie Clapham, acting volunteer centre co-ordinator, said: “Volunteering is a great way to keep active, help your local community, get out of the house, develop skills, knowledge and experience and meet new people.

“Time commitments range from helping with one-off events to contributing a few hours every week.”
